THE NATIONAL FORUM FOR BLACK PUBLIC ADMINISTATORS!

AND ROASTING STATE SENATOR RODNEY ELLIS!














The Insite had a chance to server as Master of Ceremonies for the 20th anniversary of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators. It was also their platinum gala held at the downtown Hilton. Dozens of people turned out for the event that also played host to a roast for State Senator Rodney Ellis. Believe me for most of the program I was in stitches because of the roasting. If I learned one thing at this event – it’s Rodney Ellis is an extremely cheap man who has a lot of friends. It was a who’s who in politics to attend the event: Shelia Jackson Lee, Anthony Hall, Carol Alvarado, Jarvis Johnson, Deidra and Terrance Fontaine, Melanie Lawson (Also the Mistress of Ceremonies), Minister Robert Muhammad, Adrian Collins, Alvin Wright, Joyce Bethany, Ira Scott, Rev. Marcus Cosby, Rhonda Conners, Naomi Hines, Harry Jones, Bonita Cade, Michael Dotson, and the list goes on!
